I meant - can IMA return a status code from it's init routine such that 
it gets called back when a TPM device shows up. And, at that point 
continue the initialization.

Similar to how a driver for Device A would indicate it's dependency on 
the availability of a Device B. I am not sure if such a thing is 
possible with IMA.
